Initiatives We Love
The 100 Years, 100 Facts Project invites you to check out Project SAVE, which “collects, documents, preserves, and promotes Armenian Heritage through the photograph”. Founded in 1975 as the brainchild of Ruth Thomasian and based in the Boston area, the collection has grown to over 40,000 images from as far back as the 1860s, alongside more than 1000 hours of oral history audio tapes. Project SAVE has pictures of old Armenian towns, family photos, depictions of first-generation Armenian-Americans, all the way up to daily life or community activities throughout the country in later years. The organisation also looks to Armenian life elsewhere in the Diaspora and in the Republic of Armenia, while also documenting details about Armenian photographers themselves.
